In the 18th century, Baroque dance was not just a social activity, but a performance art in its own right. At a ball, one could see solo dancers or small groups performing for the presence and for the other guests - so it was very important for one's public image to know one's stuff. Here, Baroque dancers Natalie Gal and Uta Gruber perform a tambourin accompanied by Il Giardino Armonico playing one from Jean-Philippe Rameau's Concert No. 3 in A-major.
